Come and learn about the history of Newton's oldest synagogue, which is now 107 years old. Learn about the founding of our Orthodox congregation and its relationship with the immigrant community in which it flourished, as Irish, French Canadians, Italians and Jews lived side by side and learned to be American in the early years of the 20th century.


Beryl Gilfix

Beri Gilfix, an author, is a granddaughter of the founder of the Adams Street Shul. She has served the congregation as president, secretary and chief fundraiser for over thirty years. Beri is a lifelong resident of Newton.
